AcuFocus Announces First Commercial Patients Treated With the IC-8® Apthera™ IOL

The First and Only Small Aperture Lens for Cataract Surgery


  • These surgeries by Dr. Vance Thompson kick off the limited commercial release of the Apthera IOL in the United States.
  • Apthera extended depth of focus IOL uses proprietary small aperture technology to filter out peripheral defocused light, allowing only focused light to reach the retina.
  • Results from the U.S. pivotal trial showed that Apthera IOL subjects achieved statistically superior uncorrected intermediate and near vision, and equivalent distance vision and contrast sensitivity compared to control subjects.
